What is the best way to learn how to use a laser machine?
Whether you are considering laser, intense pulsed light, radiofrequency, ultrasound, cryolipolysis or another energy based device getting practical experience (especially in a pandemic) can be tricky.
Bravura Education's online courses give you everything you need to know before a) you buy a machine, b) touch a patient/client and c) get all your business needs in line (think insurance, consumables, premises etc). They save you time and money by equipping you with the knowledge you need to decide what services you'd like to offer and what machine you'll buy. Think about this...why would you buy a machine that just does hair reduction if at some stage you'd like to do tattoo removal and/or skin rejuvenation?
The two best places to learn how to use them are in your workplace and from the machine supplier. Learning in your workplace means that you will be supervised and mentored to understand you machine and clientele's skin. Look for a senior therapist/clinician who has a current Laser /IPLSafety Certificate (done in the last three years), preferably some post graduate qualifications and experience with a wide variety of skin types and conditions.
A good supplier (see the bottom of our Home Page for examples of those) will provide ample initial clinical training with the sale of the machine PLUS ongoing support for you too. There is no-one who knows the machine's capabilities like they do either. They also may provide some of the documents you need like an Operator's Manual, treatment protocols, sample consent forms, pre and post treatment care advice and treatment records.
Some students, who don’t have access to technology for developing the practical application of their skills, like to spend time with us face-to-face. They can receive hands-on experience with cutting-edge technologies and close supervision from qualified and experienced staff and make valuable connections in the industry.
